Dear Stuart,

Does that mean that if a spelling mistake occurs in the RDF for the
title of this novel, that it's incorrect in perpetuity?
-- No.  Why would it?

Because that's what 'immutable' (your word) means. Not changing. Not fixing even the most trivial and obvious of mistakes.

What part of  «unquestionably objective "facts"» don't you understand? 

As facts, they obtain; as unquestionable, they are known infallibly; being objective, they are externally justified.  

Misspelling the name of The Author Of Waverley would be absolutely, totally, and in all other ways inconceivable
